    On our precious globe, oceans spill their majestic waters across 70% of the Earth’s surface.  Over the continents, land untainted by the presence of man is becoming ever more elusive and scarce. 
    One area that almost retains its pristine, unspoiled look is Patagonia in South America. 
    This sparsely populated region is located at the southern end of South America and displays itself across the vast lands of Argentina and Chile. As a whole it comprises of the southern section of the Andes mountains as well as the deserts, pampas and grasslands east of this. Patagonia has two coasts: to the west it faces the Pacific Ocean and to the east the Atlantic Ocean. 
    The Colorado and Barrancas rivers, which run from the Andes to the Atlantic, are commonly considered the northern limit of Argentine Patagonia. For Chilean Patagonia it is at Reloncaví Estuary.  The archipelago of Tierra del Fuego marks its abrupt southern frontier and the famed end of the world. 
    The name Patagonia comes from the word patagón, which was used by the Spanish explorer Magellan in 1520 to describe the native people that his expedition thought to be giants. He called them Patagons and, we think now, they were from the Tehuelche people, who tended to be taller than Europeans of the time. 
    Patagonia encompasses some one million square kilometers and is home to a rich and diverse landscape of plants, fauna and wildlife.  It is a spectacular wilderness full of life and full of history. 
    Early explorers and travellers faced a sometimes difficult and uncomfortable journey to reach there.  The words and pictures they brought back bear testament to a remarkable land and remarkable people. 
    These are their stories.

  • Paris Was Ours - Thirty-two Writers Reflect on the City of Light - cover

    Paris Was Ours - Thirty-two...

    Penelope Rowlands

    Thirty-two essays—many never before published—of life in Paris from writers who were drawn by the city’s charms to take up residence there. 
     
    In thirty-two personal essays, more than half of which are published here for the first time, authors describe how they were seduced by Paris—and then began to see things differently. They came to write, to cook, to find love, to study, to raise children, to escape, or to live the way it’s done in French movies; they came from the United States, Canada, and England; from Iran, Iraq, and Cuba; and—a few—from other parts of France. And they stayed, not as tourists, but as Parisians; some are still living there. 
     
    In Paris Was Ours, these outsiders-turned-insiders share their observations and revelations about the City of Light. The collection includes entries from celebrated literary expats, such as Diane Johnson, David Sedaris, Judith Thurman, Joe Queenan, and Edmund White. 
     
    Together, their reflections form an unusually perceptive and multifaceted portrait of a city that is entrancing, at times exasperating, but always fascinating. They remind us that Paris belongs to everyone it has touched, and to each in a different way. 
     
    “[A] wonderful collection . . . The essays capture the mood of the city in all of its dark and light shades, evoking the spirit of Eugene Atget and Marcel Proust.” —Chicago Tribune

    “Maggio’s tales of Sicily’s hidden villages reveal her own deep love and gentle understanding of her ancestors’ homeland” (The Boston Globe).   In this sparkling book, Theresa Maggio takes us on a journey in search of Sicily’s most remote and least explored mountain towns. Using her grandparents’ ancestral village of Santa Margherita Belice as her base camp, she pores over old maps to plot her adventure, selecting as her targets the smallest dots with the most appealing names. Whether she’s writing about the unique pleasures of Sicilian street food, the damage wrought by molten lava, the ancient traditions of Sicilian bagpipers, or the religious processions that consume entire villages for days on end, Maggio succeeds in transporting readers to a wholly unfamiliar world, where almonds flower in February and the water tastes of stone. A beautifully wrought meditation on time and place, The Stone Boudoir will be cherished by all who love fine travel writing.   “A luminous portrait of a time and a place, interspersed with a wonderful cast of characters.” —Chicago Tribune   “Maggio is a compelling writer who can render even the simplest moments into sheer poetry. . . . The Stone Boudoir is delightful.” —Los Angeles Times   “This memoir offers an austerely voluptuous pleasure for anyone seeking the heart of Sicily.” —Booklist, starred review   “A compelling meditation on Sicilian culture.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Curious, lighthearted, and enthusiastic.” —Publishers Weekly
